There are three certainties in life: Taxes, death, and potholes on Malaysian roads. These deadly indentations have so common in our society that the more astute driver has already developed the uncanny twitch reactions of a whitewater rafter when it comes to avoiding these deathtraps.
But are we doomed to live forever in fear of these potholes that don invisible cloaks during a thunderstorm? Must we constantly sacrifice our tyre rim covers to appease the pothole deities?
No, young traveler, for there is another Waze.
Waze just released a brand new update that that lets you record your own custom voice prompts. Yep, say hello to the Waze Voice Recorder because we’re all set, let’s go.
Driving can be stressful and apparently 9 out of 10 parents drive safer if their kids are in the car. However most of the time, the kids can’t accompany them on their daily commute and Maxis has teamed up with Waze with a little add-on for safer driving.
They have introduced a new Safe Mode voice pack, which essentially use voices of Malaysian children to give directions and traffic alerts.
